Here’s what you will need:
1 cup flour
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1 cup sugar
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 cup (1/2 stick) butter
1/4 cup vegetable oil
2 tablespoons cocoa powder
1/2 cup water
1/4 cup buttermilk
1 egg
1/2 teaspoon vanilla

Icing:
1/4 cup (1/2 stick) butter
2 tablespoons cocoa
4-5 tablespoons milk (more. if needed)
1/2 cup peanut butter
2 cups powdered sugar
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
Ice cream for serving (optional)

Begin by preheating the oven to 350 degrees F.

Then, in a large bowl, whisk together flour, baking soda, sugar and salt. Set aside.

In a 10-inch cast iron skillet, bring the butter, vegetable oil, cocoa powder, and water to a boil. Remove from heat and begin to whisk in the dry ingredients. Next, with a spatula, incorporate the buttermilk, egg, and vanilla until just combined. Bake the cake for 20 – 25 minutes or until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean.

While the cake begins to cool, prepare the icing. In a saucepan, bring the butter, cocoa, and milk to a boil. Remove the pan from the heat and stir in the peanut butter. Next, add the powdered sugar and vanilla. Mix until smooth. Depending on the consistency, add a the milk, one tablespoon at a time, until the icing is just pourable but not runny. Pour over the warm cake and smooth out with a spatula.

Allow the icing to set before serving with vanilla ice cream.
